training mind set

Just thinking out loud on the swimming programme I am planning for tomorrow. Warm up for a start then some kick. A see a lot of kick tomorrow, then some light work with the pull buoy to concentrate on technique. All in all looking forward to being back swimming.

June tomorrow

It is the first of June tomorrow and apart from it being the start of the best month of the year, it is also my planned day for resuming swim training. That will be the best part of 6 months out of the pool. I expect it will take a few weeks to get back into form - all going well.

free skiing season over

Well, not because of a lack of snow. With fresh snow falling today, it seem odds on for mid summer skiing in Scotland. Not that ususal but the length of run available could be substantial. Time will tell.

dry swim training

I have been thinking about what dry land exercises are best to do for keeping swimming muscles in best shape?

shoulder injury update

I given my right shoulder a couple of week break from any streneous activity, well not humphing a pair of skis across a mountain side. And it feel real progress being made in my recovery. Still stiff on performing some gentle streaching exercise but reducing everyday, hopefully make it back to the swimming pool next week.

walk to aberdeen

With no swimming in my exercise routine then I get the opportunity to walk more. Not that you don't get plenty of walking in (up to 8 + hours worth) when free skiing. So, I am going to see if I can walk to Aberdeen, hopefully monday if the sun is shining.

no swimming still

If you had asked me 6 months ago how many times I would swam in the first 4 months of 2010, I'd probably have said 40+. The total is only 3. I've finally figured out I must have tore or bady pulled the liaments around my right shoulder socket. But not unversally just on the inner side. Sort of ties in with the action that gave me the injury. Now the ski season is over, not really, the high Gorms still have massive snow fields but I'll take a break to give myself time to heal.
